I’m not big on emotions. For the most part, I can do without them and don’t miss them much. I tend to live my life on a purely rational plane. Few things can make me exhibit emotional outbursts and unfortunately, I don’t react well with people who function on emotions.
I won’t go as far as saying that I am without emotions but I can say that I am not a slave to them. Part of opening myself up means that I have allowed people find my way of dealing with the world around me unsettling.
These people react purely on emotions. Most of the decisions they make eventually can be labeled as “wrong” decisions with hindsight and they have affected me.
On the other hand, I have also brought people into my life who understand me. These people know that even encased in stone, I have soft spots. Knowing that these soft spots exist could be tempting to some, yet they let them remain untouched.
So thank you to the Red Queen, Molly & Gunda for seeing through the hardcase and letting me be me.
